Ever had writer’s block? Or perhaps you’re an artist and are experiencing a lack of inspiration. Whatever the case may be, we all need a boost of creativity sometimes, and incense sticks can help you with this!
When your mind is running in circles or feels like it just won’t “switch off” try lighting up some incense sticks and allow their soothing and grounding blend of essential oils, herbs, flowers, barks, nuts and spices to relax your mind and enhance your focus.
Just as burning incense can sharpen your mental focus, it can also help you to drift off when your mind is just too busy. Dim the lights, brew up some chamomile, and light some incense as you get ready for a peaceful night of slumber. Do this 15-30 minutes before bedtime so your room is filled with the soothing aroma by the time your are ready for bed, and always make sure the incense is burned out and any embers are extinguished before sleeping.
Not only do essential oils make your house smell wonderful, many essential oils and herbs contain antibacterial properties too, meaning that burning incense is an effective way to help purify the air from any harmful pollutants or dust that may contribute to allergies.
